This article will teach you how to track viewer behavior on your documents by connecting your Lucidpress account with Google Analytics.
To enable analytics for your published Lucidpress documents, you must first create a Google Analytics account.
- Start by visiting the Google Analytics homepage and click “Sign up for Free” in the top right corner. You will need to be logged into a Google account to do this.
- Make sure the “Website” tab is selected and type in your preferred account name. The name of your company or organization is commonly used.
- For the website name, we suggest entering “Lucidpress” to help you recognize the analytics property in the future, but the name is up to you.
- Under “Website URL”, enter “pub.lucidpress.com” and leave the protocol set to http://.
- Once you have completed the rest of the fields, click “Get Tracking ID” and you will be taken to your Google Analytics web portal where your Tracking ID is displayed.
- Copy the Tracking ID and paste it into the “Google Analytics Tracking ID” section of the Lucidpress Document Analytics page.
- To retrieve the requested View ID, go back to your Google Analytics account and click on the “Admin” tab. On the far right is a column called “View”. Click “View Settings”.
- The View ID for the selected property will be listed under ‘Basic Settings’. Copy and paste this number into the required field back on your Lucidpress Document Analytics page.
- Click “Link Analytics”, and your account will now be linked with Google Analytics. If you get an error like the one below, check to see if your browser is blocking a pop-up. Most browsers will show a "blocked pop-up" notice on the top right. Make sure you click "Always-allow" and then retry setting up the analytics.
If you’d like another user to be able to view your document analytics, you will need to grant them permission. You can do this by logging into your Google Analytics account and navigating to the property you’ve set up for Lucidpress. Click “User Management”.
Enter the email address of the user you would like to add ‘view’ permissions for on your Lucidpress document analytics. Make sure to include the 'Read & Analyze' permission level, and then click 'Add'.
